In the world of smart phones right now, Samsung can undoubtedly be cited as the market leader. They have overcome the big players like Apple and Huawei with over 21 percent market share to their name. Well, the company recently launched the Galaxy A80 Smartphone in India, and the smartphone became the talk of the city in no time. Samsung has brought in the Punjabi pop star Diljit dosanjh to promote their new smartphone in the country to bring the perfect icing on the cake. In one of the Samsung videos shared on social media, the Punjabi pop sensation was recently seen unboxing the phone.
Samsung Galaxy A80 is expected to generate some more buzz around the smartphone market and let us bring you a detailed overview of this latest offering from the giant smartphone giant while this happens.
Design and display
Samsung is largely known for producing some really good looking premium smart phones, and while bringing the Galaxy A80 to the market, they have continued with the same spirit. The Galaxy A80 still came up with the latest “Infinity display” as the first Samsung phone to feature, and this is something that at the first look will win your heart. Its display brings no-notch or punch-hole cutout. With slightly thin bezels around the top and the sides, the display is almost bezel-less. This further implies that the front of the Galaxy A80 is purely visible to its customers.
Besides its magnificent display, the overall size will amaze you profoundly. In 220 grams and large in size, the phone is quite bulky with dimensions of 165.2 x 76.5 x 9.3 mm. The phone is perfectly suited for everyone who loves to hold a large gadget full of cutting edge features in their hand. While the back is protected by Gorilla glass 6, the front is covered with Gorilla glass 3. This came as a strange strategy as the phone tends to bring more damage to its front instead of the back after falling. The 6.7-inch FHD+ (2400 ⁇ 1080) Super AMOLED display, on the other hand, is something that will attract your attention when you first go. With bright colors and free screen distraction, the view of this phone is very amazing, which will certainly make your video viewing sessions a great escape. The Galaxy a80 also comes with WideVine L1 support that will help you download your favorite HD-resolution Netflix and prime content.
Galaxy A 80 Software and performance
A few months back, the Galaxy A80 was introduced globally and is the first ever phone to feature Qualcomm’s new mid-range processor, the Snapdragon 730G. But, by the time it was launched in India, Xiaomi’s K20 pro carried the much-updated Snapdragon 730 chipset to all Indian users at a more affordable price. Well, as the processor keeps an upper hand on the Galaxy A80, this is something where customers might opt for the Xiaomi handset.
When browsing your favorite websites on the go, you can play seamlessly with the applications and enjoy gaming without any latency. And when you do that, with some awesome HD graphics, the 8 GB RAM would go more than enough for the assignment. It plays games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 smoothly. When getting along with the 30-minute gaming session, the phone always gets a little wet, which can be counted in some of its downsides. The Galaxy A80 runs on the most recent Android Pie-based One UI. In the beginning, you must set up the computer in night mode as the black looks very deep on the monitor of Amoled. The One UI function also provides the Automated well-being function that can tell you about the overall time you spend with this gadget. To restrict your use accordingly, you can even set up timers. There’s also a Wind Time feature that at night time can transform the show to grayscale. Apps like Motion navigation and Always on View are applied to others. The App icons are very wide to fit on the big screen, but by going to the settings option, you can set them accordingly. You will get some built-in apps like Samsung fitness, Galaxy wearables, Samsung Pay and other preloaded Microsoft office games, as expected with Samsung tablets. The lack of Face unlock, which must be in a high-priced phone such as Samsung A80, is one of the other frustrating facts. In addition, the sluggish and unreliable fingerprint scanner would irritate you in the process more.
Galaxy A80 Camera
The revolving camera, which helps you to use the same triple rear camera for those awesome selfies, is one of the best USPs of this Galaxy A80 Smartphone. A 48MP f/2.0 Sony IMX586 main sensor for sharp and accurate high-resolution images, an 8MP f/2.2 ultra wide-angle camera and a ToF (Time of Flight) camera for true deep mapping have been loaded into the handset. The rear panel pops up and the camera mechanism then turns to the front as you turn to selfie mode. Super Steady Video mode, Fault detector and Scene Optimizer are also enabled by the camera system.
The main camera brings to action a 12MP resolution, but when adjusting the aspect ratio to 3:4 H, you can turn to the raw 48MP mode. The role performs well in daytime and can also be recommended for low light shots. In daylight camera, the 48MP mode performs well to capture certain ideal environments and landscapes. Although the pictures might not be as bright as you would like them to be, relative to other industry leaders like Xiaomi, it works just fine. One of the other weaknesses of this phone is its low-light struggle, which is quite a disappointment for a phone with a huge price tag. While a night mode feature comes with the camera app, the clicked shots looked very normal. Night mode, on the other hand, operates only for the main camera and not in wide-angle mode. Even, in selfie mode, the LED light does not work and you only need to remain reliant on the monitor light for the same task.
Galaxy A 80 Battery
In this huge handset, you might expect a huge battery, but that’s really not the case. The Galaxy A80 has a 3700 mah battery that is very smaller compared to other versions recently introduced by Samsung under the galaxy flagship. So, it’s a given that with this Handset in hand, you won’t get an outstanding battery life. It also runs on regular use for a whole day and can stretch to a day and a half if you don’t put in the use of web browsing and youtube videos. Its ability to maximize power consumption is still the only good thing about its battery.
